There are also plans beyond the southern Aroostook area...that will include a number of projects in Northern Penobscot, from Lincoln North connecting to Oakfield.  Then the Stacyville, Sherman area up Route 11 to the St John Valley, and eventually East out Route 6...towards Danforth, etc....and a lot more...

The threat will never go away as long as the southern NE states have their ridiculous mandates. Yes, the large projects in southern Aroostook (King Pine, Horse Mountain etc.) are still in play, but their impact will be mitigated by using underground trans to an undersea cable to Mass/CT/RI. The plan is to use the existing jet fuel pipeline corridor that runs from Loring to Searsport. Keeping the turbines in southern Aroostook may be a good move - one the Governor is proposing in his legislation to recast the expedited with area.

Agree 100% Robert Powers.

Do not be totally at ease yet...there are still underground transmission corridors being strongly looked at in Maine...connecting Aroostook County to Central Maine, etc...The largest wind farm planning is being kept quiet for now...but has been in preliminary planning for over 10 years...

The Governor's EO is even more vitally important now. Without it, Maine would be wide open to wind projects and transmission upgrades that the Hydro Quebec to Lewiston bid offer would have crushed.

Hannah Pingree on the Maine expedited wind law

Hannah Pingree - Director of Maine's Office of Innovation and the Future

"Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine."

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT

******** IF LINKS BELOW DON'T WORK, GOOGLE THEM*********

(excerpts) From Part 1 – On Maine’s Wind Law “Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine if the law’s goals were met." . – Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting, August 2010 https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-power-bandwagon-hits-bumps-in-the-road-3/From Part 2 – On Wind and Oil Yet using wind energy doesn’t lower dependence on imported foreign oil. That’s because the majority of imported oil in Maine is used for heating and transportation. And switching our dependence from foreign oil to Maine-produced electricity isn’t likely to happen very soon, says Bartlett. “Right now, people can’t switch to electric cars and heating – if they did, we’d be in trouble.” So was one of the fundamental premises of the task force false, or at least misleading?" https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-swept-task-force-set-the-rules/From Part 3 – On Wind-Required New Transmission Lines Finally, the building of enormous, high-voltage transmission lines that the regional electricity system operator says are required to move substantial amounts of wind power to markets south of Maine was never even discussed by the task force – an omission that Mills said will come to haunt the state.“If you try to put 2,500 or 3,000 megawatts in northern or eastern Maine – oh, my god, try to build the transmission!” said Mills. “It’s not just the towers, it’s the lines – that’s when I begin to think that the goal is a little farfetched.” https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/flaws-in-bill-like-skating-with-dull-skates/

Sign up today and lend your voice and presence to the steadily rising tide that will soon sweep the scourge of useless and wretched turbines from our beloved Maine countryside. For many of us, our little pieces of paradise have been hard won. Did the carpetbaggers think they could simply steal them from us?

We have the facts on our side. We have the truth on our side. All we need now is YOU.
